testify before the commerce committee to give us the benefit of their immense experience, neil armstrong and gene cernan were able to do it. their testimony in may of 2010 helped us craft the nasa reauthorization act of 2010 in which we managed to pass a balanced plan that prioritized nasa's development of future exploration beyond low-earth orbit while putting significant resources into commercial development of crew vehicles to the space station. we passed it unanimously in the united states senate, very bipartisan, and we passed it on neil armstrong's birth tai. -- birthday, august 5, 2010. when the space shuttle was retired, some thought the space program was ended. you know, i took a group of cub scouts actually to johnson space center in houston just a few months ago. they have a great program for our scouts -- well, for any group that actually wants to go and spend the night at the visitors center and they get to tour nasa and hear about the great feats of our country in space. and one of the little boyce said to our nasa administrator -- and one of the little boys said to our nas

people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th

downstream and the rivers were the essence of commerce. they were the avenues of transport. and, you know, jefferson himself sometimes wondered whether louisiana's fate was with the united states. so burr was simply, i don't know, if he was articulating or was simply letting people articulate what they thought their future might be because if you lived in new orleans in 1805, it took forever to get to washington, or new york, and you could well ask yourselves, how can those people in the east govern us? that was part of what he was up to. would he have waged war against the united states? i doubt it certainly. he only had 50 guys. and so, he didn't have a army he could wage a war with. he did hope that a war would break out between spain and the united states. so did andrew jackson. so did james wilkinson, by the way who really was the trader in this story. wilkinson for decades was on the payroll of the spanish government unbeknownst to his superiors in the u.s. army and the u.s. government. anyway, so burr's logic strikes us, perhaps, assuming that he did what he was alleged to have don

talking, at the hispanic chamber of commerce event where mitt romney was talking around this time yesterday. finally here, jim, you talk about timing, here we are, still counting 49 days until november 6th, the timing isn't great for the romney campaign to have to explain these remarks that, you know, yes, they were made last may, but just as you were explaining yesterday, the romney team is trying to reboot his campaign, are they not? >> reporter: that's right. that's what they were saying yesterday morning, that they were sort of retooling his economic message and that was a big reason why they were having this speech out in los angeles and obviously there is also the irony that he was reaching out to hispanics the same day that a videotape was coming out, showing him wishing he were latino, because that might improve his political prospects. i think the big problem for mitt romney in all of this is that there are things for liberals to not like here, things for conservatives to not like here. obviously if there are people who are perhaps in the middle and thinking about voting
